Re: Risk Assessment - Workshop

Rather like Stephen1974, I used to do training on vehicle defects and used to check high profile No1 supermarket vehicles. Almost always assured they were in tip top condition. The outcome being, that if the vehicle didn't look like the supermarket one, then something was probably not right and need...

Re: First Aid - Employee Refusal To Go To Hospital

Have an issue with any manager having the authority to send an employee to hospital. Its almost the same as an employer saying an injured employee couldn't go to hospital. It would be less oppressive to use the other options as above. And even the doctors letter to say they are fit for work - if the...

Re: Health and Safety Middle Management Meeting

Sure others will come up with a long list.
Great list but missing one thing - the people. I like to see welfare updates as the No1 for those who have been injured and updates on their recovery or simply "nil" return. The lessons learned will often cascade to the other elements.

Re: H&S Consultancy Advice

Doing there ISO for a small company could be relatively uncomplicated, sitting down with the client and going methodically through the requirements and how they would manage things and get the necessary systems in place and any other shortfalls. So your experience of documentation and being methodic...

Re: CCTV Retail saved images length

In your CCTV policy, what exactly are the reasons for keeping the data? Usually its staff safety and crime investigation. For the safety / detection reasons then 28-35 days may be quite reasonable. Does the policy and registration include dealing with civil claims? If not, then surely a change of po...

Re: First Aid - Employee Refusal To Go To Hospital

Its not unusual for people who are seen by paramedics / ambulance crews to decline to go to hospital. Ive seen some quite significant injuries and they still decline, so they sign a form and thats the end of it. I would ask them to sign and then countersign it with a copy to both. Once they have sig...

Re: New job advice

You were taken on by the company / senior management, becoming established with then before hitting at what has gone wrong in the past. If they are supportive and wanting you to lead on changes, it will set the rest of your time. The management may also let you know what has been tried and worked - ...

Re: Driving

Hi Siblo, we know that few 'accidents' have a single cause but an accumulation of events coming together. So following on from your initial situation, how about this scenario to help deciding if an occasional company employee ought to have some form of driving assessment in addition to simply having...

Re: Driving

Apply a bit of practical sense. At the moment, do ALL drivers of Co vehicles have to have some form of on the road assessment? We’re assuming licence, eyesight, medical checks and such like are being done. If I suggested every 3 years for everyone ( sooner if accident or points)- is that practical a...

Re: What counts as business use for a car?

On the updated info for our driver, it reads they can’t decline to do it,so it’s work time, it’s mileage claim and business insurance The best result is for our driver to develop a fault and lose use of the vehicle - roadside penalty for wrong (no ) insurance would be vehicle seizures, points and fi...

Re: accident investigation-immediate cause

I’d take a step back and see what we have besides the “other employees “ account that he refused to wear the no-cut gloves. Was he trained and knew to wear them, were there gloves available etc.
RCA too early may lead to incorrect results

Re: What counts as business use for a car?

We’re looking at two issues, is it for work and are they insured. At the moment we don’t know if the driver was instructed to make the collection or a vague suggestion to help fellow workers. What would happen if the driver didn’t do the collection, are they paid extra for the added time etc. Insura...
